Yarn Expo Autumn 2019 returns for earlier September date

Yarn Expo Autumn will take place from 25 – 27 September at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), in hall 8.2. In 2018, the show featured a wide range of yarn and fibre products with 501 exhibitors from 14 countries & regions. The fair will be held concurrently with the 25th Autumn Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, in order to maximise exposure within the textile supply chain.

Last year’s Yarn Expo Autumn proved itself as a strong trading platform as it maintained high exhibitor and visitor turnout, despite the 2018 fair being unable to be held concurrently with Intertextile due to fairground renovations. This is in part thanks to increased recognition of the Yarn Expo brand around the world. At last year’s Yarn Expo Autumn, trade buyer Mr Andy Chu, of World Knits from Mauritius, explained, “I visit every year, and Yarn Expo helps me to meet all of my existing suppliers – they all come here. I can also meet new yarn suppliers. I think that this is the number one fair for yarn, and many of my peers agree.”

The fair will bring high-quality yarn and fibre suppliers from all over the world, and the fair is recognised by international and Chinese trade buyers as a place to find everything under one roof. Dr Siddhartha Rajagopal, Executive Director of Texprocil (organiser of the India Pavilion), commented on the reasons for the India Pavilion’s 40% growth in size at Yarn Expo Autumn 2018: “It’s important to be here, Yarn Expo reflects market demand, and everybody comes here twice a year. We see a lot of potential growing in China.”
